On December 6, 2013, Chinese authorities arrested a highly respected Buddhist abbot, Khenpo Kartse. Khenpo is well-known by the community for promoting unity, language rights and culture amongst the Tibetan people.
Thousands of Tibetans have risked their lives in protest for his release. He is reported to be suffering from an inflamed liver and in critical health. If enough people speak out for Khenpo Kartse, the more attention his case will get, and the more pressure the Chinese Government will be under to respond.
This petition has been started to continue that pressure.
Your voice will be heard by Director of Qinghai Province Public Security Bureau, Liu Zhiqiang; China’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Liu Jieyi; and China’s Premier Li Keqiang.
Please sign to help secure his release.
